administration will look like in 2013. that it may would normally be the case if a bob dole or jon mccain or bill clinton, these are people of been in office a long time either innocent or governorship, i think one had a sense of how their strengths and weaknesses. i'm not sure either case you that we now. and the question is i suppose the campaign, what have we learned from the campaigns. i'll think about that for a minute and let bart -- i think it is an interesting question in this case. >> it is a good one but there's no obvious, there is no obvious thing that leaps out that you can save look at the way romney has run the campaign, therefore he will be this kind of president. and i think enron mike lee, and maybe an obama's, too, there's a pretty sharp -- campaigning you have to go through to get elected. it's not a place unfortunate i think he really make serious arguments and really educate the public. as ron himself is said, very revealing, my test is to get 51% of the vote. of course, they will think that. it's a funny thing for a candidate to say, but that's what he thinks about campaign

the record. buffets bob, you know, i wouldn't have won with just doing social media. we won the election because we paired new forms of communication with voters and more traditional forms which is door knocking. for folks to meet me face to face and have a conversation with the living room or the cichen about the issues facing them and their family. that's what put me over the finish line. we have 89-year-old saying they lived here for the entire life and not once has the mare mayor knock on the door. it is the most important thing. you target the voters and you know how many votes you need to win. you get the voters out to vote. but at the same time, you know, i think why to piggy back on the door knocking with the social media thousands of people being able to read a post or opinion was important and to switch it over to governing it's become important. what we have been able to do as mayor we haven't been able to do. we have checks and balances and city council or the school committee, and so, you know, oftentimes whether there's an important issue you go to the city council chamber

the right to ask you to follow it. and then a great case bob jones university a tax-exempt status as a university denied by a the irs because bob jones university wouldn't allow african-americans and to its campus or african-americans changed that and wouldn't let them date anybody but african-americans, and they said that as our religious beliefs and we shouldn't be denied tax exemption because of our religious beliefs. the government shouldn't be allowed to have that power over us and the supreme court said too bad, you lose. the government can devalue tax-exempt status. even though it does involve your religious beliefs because there are some rules for the civil society and secular society, and we are founded on the principle that we get to have an organized non-chaotic government even if it does infringe on the religious belief that as long as we are not hurting the religion. so saying all of that i think a lot of what is going on with this birth control argument and with the compromise of the churches are wanting from the government have constitutional implications, and with
